Question 500hp + recipe but only 400hp

I have a 2003 7.3l with dp tunes: 80,120,140, oil crossover line, crank case breather delete, bellowed up pipes, k&n cold air intake, 4" turbo back exhaust, spr1 hpop, fuel reg, 250/100 hybrid single shots, gtp38r, ebv delete, airdog 2 165gph, built trans, tough country ladder bars, custom single piece drive line, traction bars,water meth.
I only had the chance to dyno the truck once and it put down 400hp and my goal is 500 and with all i have done i dont know what im doing wrong so i would appreciate anyones thoughts.

Not really sure but did you get your chip reburned when you did the hybrids or add any major components after installing the chip? Didn't see anything about an upgraded hpop? Im not 100% sure on high hp 7.3's but im sure someone will chime in soon.

The 38r is a great turbo upgrade but it wont get you over the 500 hp mark. Need to upgrade to like a h2e setup.
And yeah did you get your chip reburnt for all of your upgrades?? That will make a difference!

Good thing you pointed that out. I didn't even think about the PMRs..

With that being the case, im sure the tuner is dialed back some, so to not damage anything. Or its not burned to match all the stuff you have.
